Emergency and Other Useful Phone Numbers for

San Pancho

No one wants to think about an emergency situation, but it's better to face that possibility than to be caught unprepared. Whether you are a resident or visitor, the best time to prepare for an emergency is before it happens, so we have put together a list of important phone numbers so you will have them at the ready when you need them.

 

*Please see bottom of page for instructions on how to use phones in Mexico - they vary for making calls from land lines, Mexican cell phones, and US, Canadian or other foreign cell phones.

 

 

Emergency Phone Numbers

Police and Fire Services:

Mexico has recently implemented 911 as the emergency number in many states, including Nayarit. This new 911, notated as 9-1-1 in Mexico, number will be for use by both landlines and cell phones. This was implemented in 16 states Oct. 3, 2016, including Nayarit, and the remaining 16 states were scheduled to initiate it Jan. 2017. This includes 060 for local police, 061 for State and Federal District Judicial Police, 065 for the Red Cross, 066 for the national system for citizen emergencies, 068 for fire emergencies and 080 for security and emergency calls.

This is an attempt to centralize and reduce emergency calls to the various numbers they had previously, as they received thousands of duplicate calls to each of the numbers. An interesting note - 911 was chosen because many Mexicans are already familiar with its use in the U.S. through movies and social media.

Those include 060 for local police, 061 for state and Federal District judicial police, 065 for the Red Cross, 066 for the national system for citizen emergencies, 068 for fire emergencies and 080 for security and emergency calls. - See more at: http://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/emergency-911-will-be-the-number-to-call/#sthash.8ruKHaz3.dpuf
